4 Unexpected Ways To Use Éminence Products

Earlier this year we shared our pick of hardworking Éminence products and how they pull double (and even triple duty) to make you look good. Yes, it’s true - Éminence products can do a lot more for your beauty routine than you may realize. 

From treating insect bites to specialized hand treatments, we have four more unexpected and effective ways that you can use Éminence products:

1. Apricot Body Oil = Deep conditioning hair treatment 

You already love our Apricot Body Oil for its luscious scent and intense hydration properties - and when you thought this luxurious body oil couldn’t get any better - it just did. In addition to keeping your skin feeling soft and smooth, this body oil can also bring the same intense moisture benefits to damaged hair. 

Why it works
Our Apricot Body Oil contains jojoba oil - a unique ingredient that has a similar molecular structure to sebum (your scalp’s natural oil), so it adds moisture to your locks without interfering with your skin’s natural oil balance

How to apply:
After the shower, add two to three drops of the Apricot Body Oil to your palm. Rub your palms together and gently comb the oil through your wet hair with your fingers (applying at the ends of the hair where the split ends and hair damage are most common). Wrap your hair in a towel and leave on for 5-10 minutes. While waiting for the oil to soak into your hair, why not try a multi-tasking beauty treatment of your own by applying your favorite Éminence masque. After the 5-10 minutes are up, gently rinse your hair (and wash off your masque) with lukewarm water and voila! Soft, smooth skin and hair in less than 15 minutes. 

2. Charcoal T-Zone Purifier = Treatment for insect bites

One of our Facebook fans told us how our Charcoal T-Zone Purifier (from our Balancing Masque Duo) worked wonders for healing her wasp sting:

I got two wasp stings today and I tried everything to take away the sting. The only thing that helped was my charcoal masque from the Balance collection. I love being able to use my products to help everyday skin conditions.
-Vanessa Van Hengel, Éminence Organics Facebook Fan

Why it works:
Activated charcoal’s unique detoxification and absorption properties allow it to bind to chemicals and thus draw toxins from the body. Charcoal removes toxins from insect bites and takes away the stinging sensation as well the appearance of redness and swelling.

How to apply:
Vanessa suggests applying a small dab or two of the charcoal masque to your insect sting, letting it sit for about 10-20 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water. 

*Please note that this is for the topical treatment of insect stings only. For those of you with a severe allergy to insect bites please consult a physician and use an EpiPen® when necessary. 

3. Strawberry RHUBARB Dermafoliant = Overnight hand treatment 

To wake up with “baby-soft skin and healthier looking nails”, YouBeauty’s Winona Dimeo-Ediger suggests using Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant as an overnight hand treatment. 

Why it works:
Rice powder, lactic and salicylic acids (from strawberries) remove the rough, dry outer layer of dead skin leaving your hands with the smooth layer of skin underneath. By applying a moisturizer and cloth gloves, you lock in the moisture, allowing your hands time to heal and achieve maximum hydration while your sleep. 

How to apply
Winona suggests starting by wetting your hands and scrubbing them with a mild exfoliant like our Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. Then soak your hands in a bowl of warm water mixed with dried rose petals or lavender buds. Pat hands dry and follow with your favorite moisturizer (or even a rich body lotion like our Honeydew Body Lotion). Put on a pair of soft gloves and let the treatment sit overnight.

4. Bright Skin Licorice Root Exfoliating Peel = Treatment for Aging Hands 

How can you get the most out of your Bright Skin Licorice Root Exfoliating Peel? Try using it on your hands to help reduce the appearance of age spots (also referred to as liver spots or solar lentigines). These unpleasant-looking dark spots can appear on the face and hands and are common in adults over the age of 50, or earlier for those who have spent a lot of time in the sun (Mayo Clinic). 

Why it works:
This effective, results-oriented peel uses a Natural Hydroquinone Alternative from African potato and tara tree to brighten the appearance of dark spots and hyperpigmentation. 

How to apply:
After applying the peel to your face (and before disposing of the solution soaked cotton round pad), use the cotton round to apply the solution to your hands. Use the same method of application by applying the peel to your hands in circular motions and leave on. After any exfoliation treatment, please follow with one of our SPF Moisturizers like our Bright Skin Moisturizer (SPF 30). This will further lighten the appearance of age spots and for additional protection against from sun damage.
